What is counselling?

What can it do for people experiencing bullying?

Counselling is a form of therapy that helps people work through their problems and find solutions. For example, it can help people experiencing bullying, as it can give them a safe space to talk about their experiences and feelings. Counselling can also help people develop strategies to deal with bullying and build their self-confidence and self-esteem.

It can provide them with support, guidance, and tools to deal with the situation. Counselling can also help them develop better coping skills and better understand themselves and their relationships with others.

The effects of bullying

What are the long-term effects of bullying, and how can counselling help?

Bullying can have long-term effects on both the bully and the victim. For the bully, they may have anger issues and problems with socialisation. They may also be more likely to engage in future antisocial behaviour. For the victim, they may have problems with self-esteem and socialisation. They may also be more likely to suffer from depression or anxiety disorders.

Counselling can help both bullies and victims address the issues that led to their involvement in bullying and deal with the emotional consequences of bullying.
